Executive, 2020

The Coronavirus has impacted the way the Council makes decisions. Prior to the passing of new regulations by the Government, some decisions were taken using urgency procedures by the Leader of the Council and Senior Officers. The regulations made under the Coronavirus Act 2020 are now in effect until May 2021 and as such, Selby District Council is now in a position to start to deliver remote meetings. The meetings will be Microsoft Teams, viewable online by the public via YouTube. The agendas for these meetings will be published as normal on the Council's website. Remote meeting procedure rules have been produced by the Council's Monitoring Officer and are available to view at Part 4.10 of the Council's Constitution at

The Forward Plan is the list of key decisions due to be taken by the Council over the next four months. Details of each key decision will be published below at least 28 clear days before the decision is due to be taken.

What is a 'Key Decison'?

A key decision is either:

  • one which is financially significant for the service or function concerned because it relates to expenditure or savings of more than £150,000; or
  • which will have a significant impact on people who live and work in an area covering two or more district wards.
  • Notice to take a decision in private

    If a decision is to be taken in private, the Forward Plan will provide notice of when the Executive may decide to exclude the press and public from part of a meeting due to the disclosure of confidential or exempt information and the specfic reasosn for this. In such case, you can make representations about why a decision listed as being taken in private, should be considered in public by emailing Democratic Services.

    General Exception

    Where it has not been possible to meet the 28 day rule for publication of notice of a key decision, or of an intention to meet in private, the relevant notices will be published in the Forward Plan as soon as possible with the reason why the deadlines have not been met. A key decision can still be taken in these circumstances under special urgency. For further details, please read the Executive Procedure Rules in the Council's Constitution.
